What has he done to warrant this contract? Besides saying when he bleeds his blood cells are the shape of the Devils insignia? Bryce Salvador is not a good hockey player!


But you see, he does bleed Devils insignias and that $9.5M is gonna look like some real smart money when he does take that next shot off the head and we sell his body to some satanic cult/med school for $99 bagillion dollars, so now look who sounds stupid.

I don't mind this. Sal played good in the regular season and great in the playoffs.

I think a trade might go down too.

Anyone think Volchenkov might waive to go back to Ottawa?

Maybe Greene goes somewhere?

Maybe Tallinder back to Buffalo?


I don't think we make a trade.

Lou has developed a very tight and sound core of defensemen, now with the additional benefit of having successful playoff experience to grow off of. These guys know the system and it allows for Larsen to continue to grow without the pressure of killing his development by rushing him. I think we are in a perfect position on the blueline. No question marks only the potential to get even better.

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.

I think we WILL make a trade. Once we sign Fayne, we will have 8 defenders, none of who are stars, who can all play.

I hate this deal. IMO its the 2nd worst deal we've offered anyone post-lockout (Rolston being the worst).

I like the guy, but Id rather have let him walk at this rate.

Weren't you saying a lot of similar things last time we inked Salvador?

He's certainly worth the money when healthy. If he isn't healthy, he's scratched and comes off the cap. If he declines, he doesn't have any clauses that would prevent Lou from shedding his contract.

This is a three-year deal that could easily end up being a zero-year deal for a defenseman who has already exceeded absolutely every Devils fans' expectations so far. How can anyone actually have a problem with this?


He isn't worth the money when healthy, and he wasn't worth the money on his last contract. He played 2nd/3rd pairing minutes throughout that deal and got beat on them. It was signed when the cap was 56.8M. Under a 70M cap, it's a great deal.

I understand people having a problem with it, I don't get people having as much problem with is as they seem to. Almost all UFA contracts are bad, this is just another bad UFA contract, seems in line with the "badness" that many other UFA deals are.


The Devils already have 7 defensemen signed for next year. So now they have 8, and will they get rid of one? Who knows!

He didn't play for us in 2010-11 and it showed on our blueline. Don't underrate his true value.

I think this and Marty's signing is what Lou needed to do to keep us on Zach's radar.

No. We have alot of older defensemen who play physical games and will only see more time on the Injured list. This is a great insurance policy. I think we are going to carry 8 defenders and rotate. PDB has shown he will sit rest players and give the kids a chance.

We are in a position of strength with Sal back.

Ya, when Lemaire came in, it was only turned into one of the best defenses in recent NHL memory, even with Anssi Salmela around. But Salvador was the missing link.

You're right that playoff run was....oh wait we didn't make the playoffs as we floundered towards the end.

Please. I highly doubt Bryce Salvador will influence Parise's next car purchase, much less his decision to stay here. Marty is a completely different beast because of who he is and his history with this club.

A year ago right now it was unknown if this guy was even going to play again. He had a decent year. He's still old and the contract is a huge risk as he's one good shot away from being taken out again or if he plays like a moron, we will have trouble moving it.

I dont mind the guy coming back. Its purely a dislike of the #s. Not to mention the fact that we have a good defense without Bryce Salvador.

This deal is horrible. I disagree it being the worst in team history. I think thats a toss-up between Rolston and (all) of the 3 M's.

It's a locker room move, and a leadership move. There are certain types of guys Lou will pay to keep around. Bro.
